To mark the occasion, they performed to sold out crowds in Manchester and London’s Royal Albert Hall in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. The re-worked version of the album ‘St. June Re:Wired’ also reached the Top 5 on the Official UK Albums Chart.
‘St. Jude’ first dropped in April 2008 and charted at No.4 during its first week of release. The album went on to win the inaugural Guardian First British Album Award, beating albums by the likes of Duffy, Adele and Glasvegas. The record’s lead track ‘Not Nineteen Forever’ went on to accumulate more than 20 million streams on Spotify alone.
